Farm Share, one of Florida’s leading food nonprofits and the state’s largest food bank, continues to distribute food to food-insecure Floridians in the Jacksonville area. Recipients receive fresh produce and non-perishable canned goods. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, distributions are drive-thru only to minimize contact and to help ensure the safety of all parties, and attendees must wear a mask and arrive in a vehicle with a trunk or cargo bed. This month’s location was Springhill Missionary Baptist Church located on Harts Rd on the Northside and Legacy Ministries on University Blvd. With more than 3.9 million families suffering from food insecurity throughout Florida, Farm Share meets the everyday hunger needs of Floridians by working hand-in-hand with local farmers to recover and redistribute produce that would otherwise be thrown away due to aesthetic imperfections. Farm Share currently serves all 67 counties in Florida. Since its inception, Farm Share has distributed more than 751 million pounds of food, with a value of more than 1.9 billion dollars.
